1990 olds 88 no start and dash lights blink ?????
Cranks and some times starts then dies right away. then if you just have the key to the on postion the fan clicks on and off and the dash gauge lights click on and off I tried to read the codes but it will not because the gauges are blinking.. some one said it was the computer I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and solved it???

check the basics first , dont go throwing parts at it.I would start by cleaning and tightning the battery cables.check the end where they terminate on the engine. Like the block for the ground and the starter for the hot lead (+) .After that post the results. I will look for that if you need more help
